PostSubject: Beginning a Sentence with And or But   Sun May 25, 2008 8:06 am

It is now considered acceptable to start a sentence with a conjunction. The most common conjunctions to start a sentence are "and" and "but," as shown in the examples given below.


  • Starting a sentence with a conjunction can be tricky. But, when you use it sparingly, it can be very effective.
  • Many business people think starting a sentence with a conjunction is unprofessional. And, you may still believe that too.
  • If you are tempted to start a sentence with "but" or "and" and wish to use a more formal term instead,try the following:


Instead of: "But, I like the red one too."
Try: "The red one is nice too."
Or try: "Nevertheless, the red one is flattering as well."

Instead of: "And, we hope to see you this fall at our fundraising event."
Try: "In addition, we hope to see you this fall at our fundraising event."
Or try: "Furthermore, we are pleased that you will be attending our fundraising event this fall."

The grammar guides still discourage placing a conjunction at the end of a sentence, and of course, use them wisely!
